About the Programme
The MSc Applied Mathematics programme was started in the year 1975. The objective of this programme is to acquaint the students with various principles of Mathematics and train them to build & administer mathematical models to the problems in science and technology. This programme is also designed to expose the students to the various development and the applications of software, catering to the needs of the industries and R&D sectors. The programme is a perfect blend of Pure and Applied Mathematics with supporting laboratory courses to strengthen the knowledge of the students Programme follows meticulously planned curriculum based on Choice Based Credit System, updated regularly to meet the challenging requirements of the industry. The programme comprises a mini-project and a major project. The mini - project is to be done during the summer vacation at the end of the second semester. A six month major project is taken in the final semester at research institutions or software industries, thereby enabling them to have an opportunity to work in challenging environment. MSc Applied Mathematics alumni are well placed in top - notch industries, reputed academic institutions and research labs.

M.Sc. AS (1998-2000)
Studying MSc Applied Mathematics gave me strong foundation in analytical thinking and problem solving capability which was instrumental in solving complex business problems using IT applications. This course gave a solid foundation for me to excel in the telecommunication industry for all these years and for students coming from the mathematics combined with computer applications gives an edge over other main stream engineering and computer applications courses.

M.Sc. AM (2008-2010)
I joined PSG Tech with a dream of getting a doctorate. I completed my BSc Applied sciences and joining MSc Applied Mathematics at PSG Tech was one of the best decisions I have made. The course prepared me for my future. I did my research at NIT Calicut in AI based stock market decision making. The MSc program made me a versatile person balancing intellect both in Mathematics and Computer Science. The result being able to teach linear algebra and data structures for BTech Computer Science Engineering. The best foundation for the future of a person who loves both Math and technology equally. MSc Applied Mathematics will equip you with strong foundations in both areas. The course under the brand PSG Tech is always a treasure. My batch mates are also proud scientists, professors and IT professionals.
